While many people come to Marrakech to explore the old city and its colourful souks along with a stay in a riad, for travelers hoping to experience Marrakech’s lively nightlife a stay in Hivernage is more appropriate. Hivernage – home to the biggest hotels and nightclubs including Lotus Club, Jad Mahal, Theatro, and even the famous Comptoir Darna – is a happening spot until the wee hours of the morning. In our latest post, we’ve selected the best hotels for experiencing Marrakech’s nightlife.

This is theplace to stay for those looking to party! Not only is the hotel home to the Casino de Marrakech, but also the historical Theatro nightclub where a live show kicks off nightly with fire dancers, acrobats, live music and more, before a DJ keeps the crowds moving until the very early hours. Housed in the former casino theatre, Theatro is Marrakech’s premier nightclub, known to attract the best DJs. The on-site brasserie, Epicurean, is a popular dinner option for both locals and expats with the DJ spinning until 4am.

Located in the heart of the nightlife, Sofitel Marrakech is not only a great place to crash after a night on the town – the pool is perfect for recuperating after a big night – but the So Night Lounge is located on site. Travelers only have step outside the main entrance to be transported to the magical gardens and So Fun and So Good, where a live band entertains the crowds before a DJ hits the decks. But for those who prefer to head off site, the nearby Lotus Club and Le Palace restaurant are just steps away.
